So here's the thing,
I have a Textbox with this format:
and so on...

and I have an array like this:
array[,] arrDBZ;

I want that for every line in the text file populate my array for example:
arrDBZ would have this values:
and so on...

How can i do this?
So far I have this code I found on google:
using (OpenFileDialog fdText=new OpenFileDialog())
                fdText.Filter="Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt";
                fdText.InitialDirectory = Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments.ToString();
                fdText.Multiselect = false;
                fdText.Title = "SELECT TEXT FILE";
                if (fdText.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                    string data = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(fdText.FileName);
                    string[,] parsedData;

                    var res = data.Split(',')
                    .Select(p => Regex.Split(p, "(?<=\\G.{2})"))

                    var twoD = new String[res.Length, res[0].Length];
                    for (int i = 0; i != res.Length; i++)
                        for (int j = 0; j != res[0].Length; j++)
                            twoD[i, j] = res[i][j];
                    txtLoc.Text = fdText.FileName;

                    parsedData = twoD;

But this only populate the second column:
arrDBZ[0,0] would be arrDBZ[null,Goku], arrDBZ[null,Krillin] and so on...

I hope someone can help me with this.

What sort of "help" are you looking for? There is no textbox or arrDBZ in your code anywhere. Copying and pasting code from the internet is not a good way to learn.

It's very confusing what you actually want. A 2D array has 2 dimentions, kinda like a map. You need the coordinates (integers) to get your value (string).
arrDBZ[0,0] = "A Value";

Is it this you want?

Use a collection class (List, Map etc), that can take both values in each entry.

You need to use a split function

First, you split your whole text on each NewLine to an array of strings, each string is a line of original text.
Second, on each string of the array, you split on the comma to an array.

You will find a lot of examples on Google
- String to Array
- String Split
